Succinctly Yours - A Microfiction Meme #32

Grandma at Grandma's Goulash provides a picture and a word prompt for this Microfiction Meme and the rules are use the photo as inspiration for a story of 140 characters OR 140 words.

Want more challenge? Use the word of the week in your story. This part is optional.

This week's word is COMPLACENT here's the picture and my offering using the picture and word of the week  in 140 characters, including spaces and punctuation.

The complacent attitude of the people in the book signing queue would disappear 

when they discovered the author had gone home two hours ago.

I guess that's what's called a ghost writer!

Beach Bum said...

Great writing!

Sadly, I've seen the opposite a few times. Some poor author sitting alone and ignored in a book store with twenty or thirty books on his table.
